Britney Spears wore an elegant custom Versace dress to marry personal trainer and model Sam Asghari in an intimate wedding ceremony outside Los Angeles on Thursday.

The Princess of Pop completed her outfit with a dramatic satin veil and white choker as she tied the knot at her home in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

After months of speculation about who would design Spears’ dress, the singer allegedly let slip a deleted Instagram post from last year that “Versace is making my dress right now.” The brand’s creative director, Donatella Versace, confirmed her involvement on Friday, revealing on social media that her label also designed Asghari’s tuxedo.

Posting a photo of the newlyweds on Instagram, the Italian designer wrote that Spears held “a very special place in my heart.”

“Designing Britney and Sam’s wedding outfits came naturally to me,” she wrote in the accompanying caption. “A tremendous amount of love has been poured into every detail. Together with our Atelier, we’ve created a dress and tuxedo that exude elegance and glamour. They’re just perfect together!”

Versace joined a high profile guest list that included Lady Gaga, Madonna and Selena Gomez.

With its classic silhouette and three-meter-long (10-foot) train, the design featured a plunging neckline and off-the-shoulder sleeves. The fitted bodice of the dress was pleated in the front, while the skirt split into a deep V-shaped leg slit.

A Versace representative told CNN that Spears also wore pearl-embellished tulle gloves and a pair of white satin pumps. The dress took the fashion house’s tailors more than 700 hours.

Spears accessorized with diamonds worth 62 carats in the form of a tennis necklace, tennis bracelet and teardrop earrings, according to Vogue. Her bridal makeup was the work of British makeup artists Charlotte and Sofia Tilbury, with the former telling the fashion magazine she was “delighted and honoured” to work with Spears on her wedding look.

According to Vogue, there were three outfit changes throughout the evening. Spears later appeared in a red mini dress, black mini dress, and two-tone outfit, all designed by Versace.

Asghari, who met Spears on the set of her “Slumber Party” music video in 2016, wore a black wool tuxedo to the ceremony. Her suave Versace jacket featured silk satin detailing and was paired with a white shirt, black loafers and a black silk bow tie.

Spears’ wedding dress bore some similarities to the one she wore to marry Kevin Federline in 2004. That day, she opted for a classic strapless satin wedding dress by Filipino American bridal wear designer Monique Lhuillier, then changed into a white lace mini-dress. dress with high neck and bare back.

Speaking to CNN last year, Lhuillier said she only had three weeks to design and produce the wedding and reception dresses, as well as the dresses for the entire bridal party. “(I told them) ‘OK, we’ll do it. Don’t worry,'” she recalled, “but inside I was dying.”
Spears’ first husband, Jason Alexander (to whom she was only married 55 hours before the union was called off in 2004), tried to crash the star’s wedding on Thursday. He was arrested and charged with trespassing and assault, police said.
The nuptials come nearly seven months after Spears won a court battle against her longtime conservatorship, a binding legal agreement that she said barred her from marrying or having children. In April, she and Asghari announced that they were expecting a baby, although they later released a joint statement revealing that they had lost their pregnancy.

This article has been updated to reflect the year Spears’ marriage was annulled and to include details about her and Asghari’s pregnancy announcement.
